Kerri Draper is a Reiki Master Teacher and founder of Huntington Beach Reiki. She offers one of the longest running and most successful Reiki training programs in California.

Author of the Oncology Reiki Practitioner Manual, she has for many years been the Reiki teacher for Hoag Hospital, Optimal Hospice and Orange Coast College in southern California.

Kerri has been the guest speaker on Reiki for Cancer at cancer symposiums, summits and on documentaries, and has started many Reiki programs in local cancer centers, hospitals, hospice, senior centers, and horse and animal rescues.

Kerri, her mother and sister are all cancer survivors. Her father passed away from cancer in 2010. All this has made cancer very personal to her. Kerri offers all her services completely free to those dealing with cancer

Her cancer journey lasted for more than three years and today she is cancer free and feels great. She felt Western medicine healed her physical top layer, but she needed a deeper universal healing. A mind, body, and soul healing. So she decided to learn Reiki.

On her journey to learn Reiki she realized the cost for a class was more than she could afford at the time so when she created Huntington Beach Reik and began offering classes, she decided to charge by donation as she feels everyone should be able to enjoy and benefit from the gift of Reiki.

The usual cost of a Shoden Level I Class is between $150 to $350. The usual class donation for Huntington Beach Reiki is $75-$150. You will be asked to leave a donation of your choosing at the end of the class which will be shared with cancer support charities.

Bring your note taking materials, and pack a sack lunch and a bottle of water.

If you want to sit on the grass during your lunch break maybe also bring along a picnic blanket to sit on in case the lawn is damp.

The Usui Reiki Level 2 Certification class is offered on the Sunday following the Reiki Level I courses.

To register for the Level 2 class let the instructor, Kerri Draper, know you will be returning to class when you attend your Reiki Level 1 class.

NCBTMB Reiki CE class credits with Greet The Day are only available for the Usui Reiki Level 1 Certification Class.
